COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Et hundrede år efter at Carlsberg´s grundlægger Carls Jacobsen donerede statuen af den Lille Havfrue til København, er der brygget en øl til at markere denne lejlighed. Mermaid Porter er tjæresort med god fylde og et skum så kraftigt, at man skulle tro selveste Vestenvinden havde blæst det op. Øllet dufter indbydende af friskbagte beskøjter, tovværk og skippers nystoppede snadde. Smagen er rig på varme, malt og lakridsagtig bitterhed. Mermaid Porter er brygget til ære for Den Lille Havfrue udført af billedhuggeren Edvard Eriksen. Det var bryggeren Carl Jacobsen som fik ideen til statuen og det var takket være hans gavmilde donation, at Den Lille Havfrue kunne præsenteres for offentligheden d. 23. august 1913. Ingredienser: brygget af bygmalt, rugmalt, havregryn, hvedemalt, rørsukker, salturt, østers, humle og gær. Flaskens indhold svarer til 5 genstande. Alkohol styrke 10%. Mermaid Porter sælges i en gaveæske med 2 x 0,75 l. øl.

Kulsort med brunt skum. Let syrlig duft med malt, røg og tjære. Smagen er fyldig og let sødlig med bitterhed både fra malt og humle. Fremragende balance, hvor man slet ikke fornemmer den potente alkoholprocent. Eftersmagen er sød og let bitter.

30-APR-2016, draft @Taphouse. Black with almost no head. Big tan bubbles at the rim. Roast, sweet, milky chocolate and licorice. No carbonation. With a Little carbonation it would be OK but no match for Carnegie 175 I had on the side.

TorbenJensen (1452) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015
Black and completely foam left porter. The impression is somewhat boring to look at, but the taste is very mellow coffee, English licorice and good hard roasted malt. Delicious all-round porter with emphasis on licorice.
